So i decided I really needed a hobby. A lot of my other friends scrapbook or sew or do cool things with their time. I really didn't do anything. :-) In my life I've knitted, quilted, cross-stitched and tried to do scrapbooking - but I'm very notorious for starting things and not finishing things. I sorta get bored and I wouldn't say that I'm creative in any way, and most hobbies require a lot of supplies (which is not really in our budget). I'm a pretty boring person - I just go about my day - cooking, cleaning, taking care of carson. But I need something else to put my efforts into. When Richard is doing homework I just watch TV or something. Which I knew was not always a healthy thing since richard does homework a lot. :-) I am pretty efficient at doing all the household stuff through out the day so that after supper, it's relaxing time. But now what do I do? I need to put my brain to better use, I need to challenge my brain instead of let it go to waste and a hobby seemed to be a good outlet.
So I (with some help from my sister Juli at new years trip) embarked on my trail of making jewelry. It seems to be relativelly inexpensive to start out and keep going, if i just look around. I enjoy the idea of making jewelry and having it for myself, or gifts etc, so we will see how long it sticks. I had a very minimal tutorial by my sister, and have tried to figure more out. This week i have successfully made 2 necklaces and a pair of earings, and look forward to learning more and doing more. if anyone has any ideas or helpful hints I would much appreciate it. :-)
